Meet Robin Amos Kahn
(Senior Executive Trainer)
Robin Amos Kahn
Storytelling has been a major theme in Robin’s career and it’s one of the many coaching tools she uses to help customers become more effective communicators and leaders. Understanding the concerns of your audience, your team, or your customers, using empathy and compassion to connect, and knowing what stories will enable your message to reach them, is one of the most powerful techniques of leadership.
Trainings for women leaders is also one of her passions and she has been fortunate to lead many – including trainings for young girls at the Eleanor Roosevelt Center and for women at companies all over the world. She is also a keynote speaker and is working on a TEDx talk on the power of storytelling.
Robin’s talents led her to spend 25 years as a professional writer for television and theater. She has been nominated for several Emmys for her work on shows such as The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, and Guiding Light, is the winner of a Writers Guild Award, and worked on a film for the United Nations Development Program. She was a research assistant for Dr. Edgar Schein, Chairman of the Organizational Psychology department at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
Robin writes for the Huffington Post and Medium on topics as varied as resilience, finding your voice, leadership, and swing dancing. Robin appeared on In Her Power, a PBS special on women.
Robin resides in SoHo, New York,.
“Robin, what would I have done without you? Your encouragement, normalizing of fears, your faith in me and then your skill at helping me craft the message, tighten the storytelling and adding bits of gold along the way – I truly can’t imagine how I would have gotten where I did Wednesday morning. Your spirit, compassion and relatability are worth a million. With Deep Thanks!”
